The Independent call it “The Great Green Betrayal” . But are we surprised that Gordon Brown isn’t green ? He doesn’t do colours really does he ? He ditched red for blue, and now like John Major seems quite content with various shades of grey. He’s hardly the Jolly Green Giant, more the Dour Grey Ditherer. Why on earth he invited that mad old shrew, Thatcher, to Downing Street last year I’ll never know. What advice could she give him “ The Climates Not For Changing? “ . The only woman who’d keep pushing a door until the end of time that says “Pull” whilst growling “This ladies not for turning!!” Some call it conviction politics, I call it ” mad as a bleeding hatter!”
So it transpires that Gordon Brown sought to appoint GMTV’s Fiona Phillips to a ministerial post (story here ), as he sees her as a “great communicator”.Brown is obviously taken with Phillips hard hitting interview style, and ability to get the big names on the GMTV couch, it’s believed the next stellar name she will be interviewing is Christopher Biggins. Phillips promises a “full and frank, no holds barred ” discussion in which she promises to reveal all about the seedy side of Panto, and ask the questions only she dare ask …for example, does he find cries of “behind you” during Panto, slightly homophobic? She also alludes to the fact that Biggins is to reveal how his dyslexia almost led to him losing his most famous role, that of Widow Twanky, and he could also openly discuss the shockingly true nature of his sexuality. Despite Ms Phillips turning down Gordos offer the VP Express can exclusively reveal that the Prime Minister has not given up hope of attracting a Celeb in order to curry favour with the voters. We can in fact reveal that Gordon is indeed much impressed by another lady currently appearing on TV. A lady whose diplomacy, and straight talking is legendary,she may be a little “off the wall” but Brown can see that her no nonsense approach is something the public have responded too and he is keen to cash in and ride the populist wave, rather like a fat sour faced Scottish David Hasslehoff, with thread veins and a face hewn from lumpy dough.
….he appears to think he is setting the political agenda, yes he is pulling the strings and Gordon is dancing to his tune…..(that’s if you believe David Cameron….) Frightening really, that the Jeremy Kyle of Parliament is becoming rather more popular than he was some six weeks back
He also seems to think that all the best policy decisions made by any political party over the last 40 years have been his and his alone….. hmmmmm…mind you his family album shows Davey boy has always been one step ahead of the game…
Yes, there’s nothing like well reasoned argument, mutual respect, and good manners , and yesterday in the House of Commons was nothing like it. Brown referred to the whole ill tempered episode as “Punch And Judy Politics” . If he’d have been “down with the kids, daddio” like Facebook loving Davey Cameron, he might have referred to it as Jeremy Kyle politics……
“Come On Prime Minister, you are not the biological father of the inheritance tax policy are you ? We’ll have the results of the lie detector test after the break,”
So with a “yah, a boo” and dare I venture a “hiss” I submit…….is that really the way to do it ??
Listen to highlights of the most intellectual parliamentary exchange in years below
David Cameron is losing his appeal to voters, according to a recent Guardian/ICM poll which suggests that many Conservative voters are losing their enthusiasm for the Tory leader. It also shows that he is no longer attracting new support to the party.
He just cant compete with the “Brown Bounce” factor , but what on God’s green earth is “Brown Bounce ?” ..Let me attempt to explain…..
